Can I get any advise on best place to get tickets for the game on Saturday?

Coming from out of the country and wonder do I just get from Stubhub or is there another way?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You need an Arsenal membership and you can then buy or get them on exchange. I believe they are fast tracking membership at the moment.



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

No offence to Trent2000 personally, but fans like him/her are the reason why Stan and the Board don't really care why a percentange of the Arsenal fanbase is calling for change or calling for Wenger to go, because they know that there are still many Arsenal fans who will go to the Emirates and maybe also buy stuff from the Armoury beacuse they hardly ever have the chance to go see their team live and so will take the chance to go the Emirates when the more hardcore fans stop going, so the profits will still keep coming in and that is all that the people in charge of Arsenal FC care about.

No offence to the internet keyboard warriors but Stan and the Board don't really care what you think. If you watch Arsenal games on dodgy streams for nothing you are irrelevant.

If you go to a bar/pub or have home pay TV or whatever to watch the games you have leverage. Stop going to the pub, cancel your cable subscription and let them know it's because you want Wenger/Stan out.

I live in N1 (can wallk to the Emirates from home in 30 minutes if needed), I actually had an Arsenal membership, used to go to the Emirates for EPL games couple times a season, plus the odd cup games and even youth games, used to buy Arsenal kits every season and also even used to buy Arsenal merch from the Armoury like mugs, key chains, DVDs, etc. quite regularly, but that all stoped a few years ago when I realised what this club had become, so don't treat me like I am some dissconnected Arsenal fan who is far away from Highbury/Holloway (I was raised in Islington and now live in Hackney so Arsenal is my actual local team from the beginning) who never supported the club directly and that I also haven't already done my share of boycotting the Board and Stan.

Again, no offence to Trent2000 personally, as I can understand why fans like him/her would want to go see our team play live in our own stadtium, especially if they never had much chance of doing that before. I am just saying that is more than enough of those fans to not worry Stan and the Board, so if those fans actually want change too then they too need to stand strong and not give in to Stan and the Board.

I wasn't particularly referring to you OG and I wasn't calling into question anyones support of the club.

We get to this point every season when season ticket holders are asked to boycott a match as a protest against Wenger or the owner. Trouble is the club have already banked the money so if Trent buys a ticket on the black market for the game vs Lincoln it will make no financial difference to the club.

TV revenue is the biggest earner for EPL clubs now so a more effective protest might be if Arsenal fans stopped their Sports TV subscription and let Sky/BT or whoever know why.

Oh right, I misunderstood you plonky.

Yes I agree with you said and if Trent is looking for tickets that has already been sold the fair enough, but I still know that there are many Arsenal fans waiting in line to give money to Stan and the Board even when they want change at Arsenal so the club isn't worried and thus all fans that want change should take action and if that means cancelling your Sports TV subscription then do it.

Even if you cancel your Sky subscription, it does matter an iota.

5.5-billion 3-year TV Deals is for the entire premiership with each team share equally a basic sums plus rest depending on position on the table at season end.
Of course, the more you are involved in live televised matches, the more you collect as well.

The key to drive out Arsene Wenger is to hit Silent Stan in the pocket.

A half-empty stadium will not attract lucrative sponsorships and premium rates from advertisers.
Neither will TV broadcasters like to bring matches from a half-empty stadium when trying to maximize their advertising revenues. Unpopular teams will not bring in advertising revenues.

Next is merchandise sales.
If every angry Arsenal fans stopped buying from Armoury and boycott Arsenal products, guess what will happen to commercial revenues?

Good example.
Take a look at USA when angry consumers decided to boycott Ivanka line of fashion.
Result?
Store decided to discontinue Ivanka products.

So when will angry Arsenal fans put money where their mouths are and stop buying Arsenal products till Arsene Wenger is booted out ... and refusing to attend Emirates games no more??

Ok, to clarify my situation.

Going to London to visit a friend and we want to go to a game, I am unfortunately a loyal Arsenal fan, who takes time out of his life to watch all games on TV from Texas.

I feel for season ticket holders who pay an outrageous amount on a season ticket and get this@#$%&football.

We have so much potential, but are held back by one person and the board or owner does not care.

What can I do about it?

All my friends joke about following Arsenal, because they know what the outcome is and they laugh at it.

As I have said before its groundhog day till we get change.

Thanks for the heads up on the Ticket Exchange.

I was so dispirited that while visiting London again, and staying at Hilton near Old Street Station, that I can't be bothered to visit Emirates or catch a game.



Supporting Arsenal Times is Spornosexuality which involves a significant amount of work, time and constant labour but offers very little reward, but the pleasures yielded are only fleeting. Spornosexuality has eroded young men's traditional support of values so they have become increasingly reliant on their delusional disorder and whingeings as a means of feeling valuable. (Sm3)

Stop telling Optimistic Gunner what to do.

You are not the boss of him.

Padre Pio, thanks for the advice, it worked great.

Actually got great seats and very easy to do.

I am as dispirited about the team as everyone, but I only make it over once every five years and taking a friend and his son to see the game.

So sad to visit with the team in despair, but hoping to make the young boy into a future Gooner.

Thanks again Padre!!!!

Great! Well done.

It is my dream to get over there to make the pilgrimage someday.
And, whenever that happens, I will be there as a hardcore fan - not as just another damned tourist.

Feel free to chase wenger out of the club while you're at it.

Just shows that all the guff about tickets selling like hot cakes is just that - guff

Never Merl!

My other team is LSU Fighting Tigers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Kroenke is the debil; there is no point in following ANY of his clubs if you want to experience ambition and success.

Great experience again at the Emirates, the club seats are great. I enjoyed the Lincoln City fans and really was rooting for them to make it a game. The Arsenal fans are pretty quite and don't seem to bothered during the game, just sad. Watching the game, only Alexis, Hector, Laurent and Mesut are the players to watch the others seem very ordinary. Gibbs and Aaron were painful along with Giroud.

The ticket exchange is the way to go if you are traveling to the Emirates, thanks again for all the advice.

Arsenal fans were in no hurry to forgive Tuesday, and you don't big it up against minnows.
At least half the stadium remained behind to give Lincoln a standing ovation, that showed class, and pointedly there were far more Arsenal fans left in the stadium than there was for CL
